Interesting is 9...b6 10. Nxd5 exd5 11. Bg2 Nf6 Ponomariov, R - Kramnik, V, Wijk aan Zee 2003. Also possible is 9...Nxc3 10. Bxc3 c5 11. Bg2 cxd4 12. Qxd4 Bf6 13. Qd6 Nb6 14. Qxd8 Bxc3+ 15. Nxc3 Rxd8 Volkov, S - Sakaev, K, New Delhi 2000.
10. Bg2








   
10...e5?!

White is better.
14...Bc5 15. Ne4! Bxd4








   
16. Bb4!
Very strong.

White seizes the only open file and has two bishops advantage.
17...Nbd5 18. Nd6 Re5 19. Nc4 Re8 20. Qc1 Qc7 21. Bd6 Qd7
After 21...Qd8 22. e4 b5 23. Ne5 Qxd6 24. Nxc6 Bg4 25. exd5 Be2 26. Re1 White has an extra pawn and a clear edge.
22. e4 Nb6 23. Bc5 Qc7 24. Nd6 Rd8
Or 24... Re6 25. Bh3 winning.









   
25. Nb5!
A beautiful combination.
25...cxb5 26. Qf4!
Now if 26...Qxf4 then 27. Rxd8+ Ne8 28. Rxe8 checkmate.
